Electric bikes are boring eh? Well have a look at this lap by John McGuinness and then think again. Yes the sound emitted lacks soul but there is no lack of grunt. The lap was completed at an average speed of 117 MPH!
TT legend John McGuinness won his 21st TT race when he took the SES TT Zero race in record-breaking style. Riding the Mugen Shinden, McGuinness was always in the lead and with a stunning new lap record of 117.366mph, he came home 23.3s clear of team-mate Bruce Anstey. Rob Barber, on the Ohio State University Buckeye machine, took third.
